Waste Not, Want Not

Yale makes it easy to recycle that aluminum tray and those 1-7 plastics – throw them all in one green bin! Learn more about what can be recycled through Single Stream recycling.

All Yale faculty and staff can now reduce costs and waste through the new Eli Surplus Exchange Program. Similar to Craigslist, the exchange facilitates reuse and recycling of surplus items.

Free or reasonably priced office supplies, unopened chemicals, furniture and lab equipment can either be posted or obtained. There is also a forum for items that you may be looking for. The Exchange is for Yale goods and property and for business use only. Furniture and equipment for personal purchase are still available through the TR&S Surplus site. The next phase will include universal waste such as computers and electronics.
